meeting. >> senator dianne feinstein admitted that she had her gun ban bill ready to go a year ago. tucked away in a drawer, just waiting for the right opportunity. really? waiting for an unspeakable tragedy to push her political agenda? >> we'll start with this. we're going to start with guns and the showdown that everyone is talking about. senator dianne feinstein clashed with freshman senator ted cruz. feinstein says cruz patronized her with an unsolicited civics lesson on gun legislation. let's get straight to our panel now. cnn contributor and political consultant margaret hoover in washington, patricia murphy, founder of jane politics, here in atlanta, and democratic strategy jamaal simmons in washington. this has created some fireworks everywhere. patricia, i want to start with you. what is your take on the feinstein/cruz smackdown? >> i have many takes. i think cruz was out of line. senator feinstein is a 20-year veteran of the judiciary committee, wrote first bill on the assault weapons ban, she doesn't need a lecture on the constitution. in addition to being rude to her, this man
and the bill's sponsor, california senator dianne feinstein. >> would she think the fourth amendment protection against searches and seizures could probab the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that congress has deemed outside the protection. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. it's fine you want to lecture me on the constitution. i appreciate it. just know i've been here for a long time. i've passed on a number of bills. i've studdied the constitution myself. i'm really well eye okayed it and thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit -- it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough for the people in the united states? >> nobody doubts her sincerity or her passion, and yet at the same time i would note that she chose not to answer the question i asked, which is, in her judgment, would it be consistent with the constitution for congress to specify which books are permitted and which books are not and to -- >> the answer is obvious. no. >> sean: joining me now, someone who has beenous spoken been the gun grab. a
. that is the best way to do it. the senate hearing between feinstein and crews, that back-and-forth was just, i thought shameful. when she said, isn't that enough? don't you have enough guns to make a tough, isn't that their argument for everything? isn't enough money? isn't it enough health care? don't you have enough already? can you let us control you even more? and that is what they're trying to do. lou: is that what you think they're trying to do? >> not at all. i mean, i guess, you know, what they said basically was everybody should have a gun everywhere, including a round are most vulnerable citizens to our children. i just think not only do i think that is silly but it is not effective. you look back at places like columbine. there was an armed guard, and he was shot and killed. you know what, it is not a guarantee of any security, added security for our children are safety. yesterday i had exactly the opposite reaction. you know, i thought he was condescending and reared. you think about what dianne feinstein went through as mayor of san francisco where she saw people slaughtered in he
not. so when he suggests to dianne feinstein. >> or lectures. >> or lectures she is violating the second amendment that this impinges on second amendment right that is false. this isn't opinion. this is fact. read the damn case law. he keeps doing it and it's driving me crazy because he is supposedly a learned man. >> i think has leads to the next point. we are talking about politics. senator cruz has not just on these issues but on a variety of issues has decided he is going to stake out some turf that is right in the sweet spot of the most conservative, most populist, most red meat tea party elements of his party and decided to do it on a variety of things. he has done it on chuck hagel and done it throughout and with a tone of disrespect that is upsetting a lot of republicans and upsetting a lot of democrats every time he rares his head since he has been in the senate. he hasn't been there very long. he takes this tone and adopted this position to advance some kind of a gender that is trying to get him in a particular place with the republican party. >> i don't mind people
a great press conference where senator boxer and senator feinstein, representative pelosi, and they talked very glowingly about moms who were there. 250 moms were there, and we had more than 100 meetings with our legislators today to demand common sense gun laws. >> michael: a lot of the names you just mentioned are names we would expect to be in favor of changing the gun laws we have now. what about representatives on the hill who are opposed to these gun laws? >> live in indiana, so i had four different meetings with representatives and senator staff from my state, and the democrats and republicans alike are very progun in the state of indiana. but they hear constantly from members of the nra and gun lobbyists who tell them that, you know, we are trying to ban all guns or take away the second amendment and we need to come more often and in district and make the calls to show that we are 80 million strong, the nra is 4 million strong and if we ban together we'll make a difference. >> michael: you mentioned that some of these meetings were emoti
of the senate judiciary committee, dianne feinstein, whose plan would ban a certain number of assault weapons and magazine clips and senator ted cruz, he spoke to her about the constitution. here's part of the exchange yesterday from the senate judiciary committee. [video clip] >> which reconsider its constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights, likewise with she-pac before amendment protection against search and seizure could properly applied only to the following specified individuals and not to the individuals that congress has been outside the protection of the bill of rights? >> you have a question, senator? >> let me make a couple of points in response. i am not a sixth grader. senator, i have been on this committee and 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in and some people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i have seen the bullets that imposed. in sandy hook, youngsters were dismemb
they would not even try to do that. the bill's sponsor, dianne feinstein today said she was told her assault weapons bill will be dropped by the senate democrats when they move their package on to the senate floor for a vote. now, if this seems weird or inconsistent, you're right. it is a little weird and inconsistent. the initial strategy of the democrats on gun issues was to move everything a la carte, so maybe you don't like the ban, but that shouldn't stop you for voting for an increase or background bill. so if you object to one part, you can still support the rest of it. that was the strategy at first. the strategy at the committee level, but now that they are past the committee level and on to the next step apparently, a la carte is over and the one bill will not include the ban. so you can fire dozens of rounds. senate democrats are not even going to try. what will be in the bill is still an unanswered question. but democrats aren't going to try for a limit on extended magazines. what about background checks? the group mayors against illegal guns released this ad today to try to keep
well know, where the chair, dianne feinstein, the sponsor on the judiciary committee of the assault weapon ban, basically sent ted cruz back to school for his approach and his challenge to run constitutional grounds. but here was wayne lapierre today speaking to cpac. >> the vice president of the united states actually told women facing an attack, to just empty their shotguns into the air. honestly, have they lost their minds over at the white house? >> do you have any response to mr. lapierre? >> i think that mr. lapierre -- public handling of the aftermath of newtown has been amply ann analyzed and discussed and has not been particularly helpful for his cause or the more important cause, which is reducing gun violence in america and i think that's an assessment that is widely held. what we need are partners in a cause that should not divide democrats from republicans, because the victims of gun violence are not democrats or republicans, they're americans and sometimes they are six and 7-year-old americans. the president believes we need to take steps, common-sense steps that reduc
that senator dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban will not be part of any gun bill he brings to the floor. >> right now her amendment using the most optimistic numbers has less than 40 votes. that's not 60. i'm not going to try to put something on the floor that won't succeed. i want something that will succeed. >> i asked him if this could be part of a package. he said no. this is very important to me. and i'm not going to lay down and play dead. >> we're going to work on thisment we're going to find the votes. it deserves a vote. see if we can get it done. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here with the morning's first read. he joins me now. mark, you know this is interesting. for those of us who watch politics, the assault weapons ban expired in 2004. it hasn't really been too much of an issue since then. came back to the forefront with newtown. but it didn't really have pathway forward. there is a lot of red state democrats that were uncomfortable with this vote and even harry reid who had a strong nra backing in the past making a move to pull it out saying don't let the
that comes to the senate floor." senate majority harry feinstein said he would allow an amendment for the assault weapons ban but another wrote that diminishes its chances of passage even more. then leaders stop budget defection in the house paul ryan's budget will be on the floor this week and senate democrats introduced their budget last week, and both des are saying none of their talk with are we'll arl and the associated press expected to as , and efore the hispanic would like to talk about the gang of eight is working on. this comes as the republican national committee yesterday outlines their report for republicans going forward, things the party needs to work on and one of them is embracing comprehensive immigration reform as part of an effort to reach out to minority voters. chris, republican caller. hi, what are your thoughts on saving for retirement? go ahead. caller: good morning from across the river, i was a federal committee and until recently when it was cut in 2010 and i'm on furlough and don't expect to be brought back because of the economy, so i just sought ot
, for instance, to photograph police in public. i think it's a mixed picture. >> thank you. senator feinstein. >> thank you very much. i am one that has real concern about drones being used commercially inside america. i know what drones can do. started toscano, you out with a very seductive thing, that is it can produce large amounts of new jobs, which we would all like to have happen. however i have seen drones do all kinds of things and i think those all kinds of things bring n great caution. i think we have to look to what purposes can drones be legitimately used. how do you monitor their use? how do you certify the equipment? because all kinds of things can be added. it may well not be legal to carry any munitions on a drone, but what can be done illegally and how can the government prevent that from happening? think the ability to -- what altitude can they fly? what kind of recognition are they -- facial recognition are they capable of at various activities? can they take pictures of an individual through a window inside their home? a business through a window of their business? on the
: dianne feinstein said yesterday, she tried her best but it was not good enough. the washington post has this headline -- host: this is the front page of the daily news, shame on the united states -- host: on president obama's visit you can seebank -- posters that palestinians were holding up with the words, no hope on them. following up yesterday on the south carolina first district race, here is the state newspaper this morning. the former governor is in a runoff with other room -- republicans -- host: also, this morning, the politico front page -- even political viewers might be shocked -- also, the paper is noting that the senate is moving forward for a continued resolution to fund the government for six months. john in illinois, what are your thoughts on the 10th anniversary of the iraq war? caller: i was a desert storm veteran. i thought if we fixed the job did then, we would on how to deal with this 10-year war. host: what do you mean, not enough resources? should have moved in and removed saddam hussein. then, we would not have had to fight the 10-year war at all. roger in san di
of opposition, and that bill, senator feinstein's assault weapons bill passed on a party line vote in the committee. but because it's tough isn't a reason not to move forward. i don't think we need anymore reason to motivate us than newtown. >> the committee meeting turned a little testy. i want to play this exchange for you viewers. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment and the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. i've been on this committee for 20 years. i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit -- you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough? >> what can we expect to see and hear in the senate when that bill reaches the floor? >> well, unfortunately you're going to hear a lot more of the same that you just heard from senator cruz. a lot of it patronizing, as i think that exchange was. unfortunately, misapprehension what the second amendment prohibits. there i
and donilon talks about it and senator feinstein talks about it. the china loves to sign treaties, but don't honor any of them. remember the ripping off of dvd's and china was selling them on the streets. they said we're going to clamp down on copy right. and the name hackers, it bothers me, i think of somebody trying to get a bank account or information like that or trying to drive up traffic on a website, but they're trying to get state secrets. that doesn't sound to me like hackers. >> not only are they spies, but they're saboteurs going after critical infrastructure. the great 2003 blackout in the northeast, probably caused by a chinese hacker causing a cascade and a loss of power. and americans died in that. this is a serious issue. it's not just spying or hacking. >> during the heatwave we had folks dieing, the elderly. they're going off certain agencies and we know that microsoft has been infiltrated, apple has been looked at and google has pulled out of china in part because of this. what are they going after? >> they're going after everything, not just the national security establ
schools, our streets, or one child in this country safer. senator dianne feinstein admitted that she had heard on ban until ready to go out your drawer,ked away in a waiting for the right opportunity. really? waiting for an unspeakable tragedy to push their political agenda? is it any wonder why most americans don't trust congress? they are simply not serious about making our kids or our country safer. if they were serious, they would arrest, they would prosecute, and they would imprisoned felons with guns, gangs with guns, and drug dealers with guns, as many as they could find. [applause] that's what they would do. and that's with the public wants. but they do not do that. what they do instead, if they let them go free. let's talk for a minute about this thing called sequestration. i run the nra. not an economic think tank. but i watch the news. i see that instead of rational belt-tightening, the first thing the government thinks to do, according to law-enforcement officials, and let thousands of criminal illegals out of jail. you know what? normal people all over the country think that
the senate will debate next month. california senator dianne feinstein says instead of being included in the measure, the ban will be offered z an amendment. the ban seems to stand little chance of surviving because of expected -- defections expected from republicans, likely also defections from some moderate democrats. and now to live coverage of the u.s. senate here on c-span2. the presiding officer: the senator from oklahoma. mr. inhofe: i ask unanimous consent i be acknowledged for up to seven minutes as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. inhofe: thank you, madam president. we -- we've been listening to our -- our good friend from kansas concerning this contract air traffic control towers. i think of all of the -- there's no better example to use than saying -- picking up a bureaucracy and taking somebody that everybody wants, that's very inexpensive and using that to try to force people to do something that shouldn't -- that -- that should never have happened. in items of the contract air traffic control towers, this is not just a -- a rural iss
